I cheered silently when I read the headline on France 24 about Russia’s Putin saying the Ukraine grain deal won’t be restored until the West meets Moscow’s demands on its agricultural exports. Russia must counter the maniacal strategies with weighty consequences, or the Ukraine bloodbath will continue perpetually. Why should the Russians give an inch after being pushed into the corner? The sooner the public understands this, the sooner we can demand a stop.
